An armed force of backcountry farmers known as the "Regulators" battled Royal Governor William Tryon's colonial soldiers here in Alamance County in 1771. A video and tour explore the British policies that angered farmers and resulted in the rebellious clash of arms. The Regulators' tactics became a model for American colonists fighting the British in the Revolutionary War.
The restored Allen House is a typical 18th-century farm home made of logs, evoking life in the North Carolina backcountry.
